Has anyone knowledge or experience with abdominal abscess after surgery. My husband suddenly developed severe colitis and his bowel ruptured while in hospital. Emergency ileostomy with some complications one being septic shock the other was an abscess about a month later while stillin hospital. It has been drained percutaneously (sp?) 3 times, this being the third. Drain has beenin for over a month and still about 10-20 cc each day. No fistual commincation, tested for that 3 times. He has beenhome since mid January.

You might want to check out www.j-pouch.org There are lots more folks on that site who have had surgery that might be able to give you advice.

dx proctitis in 1987
dx UC in 1991, was stable until 1998

1998 started prednisone, asacol, pentasa, nortriptylene, ativan, 6MP, rowasa enemas and suppositories, hydrocortisone enemas, tried the SCD diet, being a vegetarian, omega 3s, flax, pranic healing, yoga, acupuncture, probiotics

2000 lost all my B-12 stores and became anemic

2001 opted for j-pouch surgery- now living life med-free
